The Silent Patient

Cure forensic unit in North LondonTheo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist who has waited a long time for the opportunity to work with Alicia His determination to get her to talk and unravel the mystery of why she shot her husband takes him down a twisting path into his own motivations a search for the truth that threatens to consume hi. The beginning hooked me in because I was intrigued to learn about Alicia s story how her husband was murdered and why she chose to remain silent However the book ended up bordering as a cheesy murder mystery with the main character acting like a white knight detective who would uestion a bunch of cartoonish side characters that just outright admit their motivations or feelings about Alicia The twist was interesting but a bit shaky I think it could have been built up in a believable way

Alex Michaelides ☆ 5 review

Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect A famous painter married to an in demand fashion photographer she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London’s most desirable areas One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot and Alicia shoots him five times in the face and then. CONGRATULATIONS Goodreads Choice Awards Mystery Thriller WinnerI feel like I should preface my review by stating that I have read A LOT of psychological thrillers and coupling that with the fact that this was my most anticipated read of 2019 gave The Silent Patient a great deal of pressure This will still be an overall positive review but I felt I had to include some honest thoughts here as well for those readers who may need their expectations in line like I clearly did The premise here is simply incredible we have a woman named Alicia Berenson who is accused of murdering her husband and proceeds to clam up and keep uiet for the following six years living during this time in a mental care facility called The Grove for highly dangerous folks Enter Theo Faber psychotherapist extraordinaire and flawed individual He already has a respectable job elsewhere but decides to transfer over to The Grove even though it is a sinking ship because he is obsessed with Alicia and solving the mystery behind why she murdered her husband Along the way we get snippets into Alicia s diary leading up to the murder alongside of Theo s POV I can t really give you anything than this because this is a novel that depends on you being fooled by the twist You know the big twist the one where every blurb on the cover and every early review gives you a heads up and perhaps that was part of the issue here for me It seems these types of books that pull the wool over your eyes and take you by surprise are best enjoyed before anyone else has had a chance to read them Let s come back around to the fact that I ve been reading mysteries thrillers and suspense novels for decades way before Gone Girl was written and these domestic dramas with tricky slight of hand became all the rage If you are new ish to the psych thriller scene and you whole heartedly enjoyed recent novels such as The Woman In The Window you will adore this It was a well written compulsive slow burning build up to an explosive ending Structurally it had everything you could ask for as it was well researched engaging and the perfect length of includes what we need without being overly winded Unfortunately I ve seen this particular twist done numerous times so I was clued in fairly early to what the big twist would be and without spoiling or giving anything away the lay out of the narrative in the second half of the novel is what fully clued me in because it was too neat and tidy to end any other way I will say that I was so satisfied and pleased with the way the author chose to close out the final chapter and regardless of being surprised by the twist or not it was a classic wrap up that will stand the test of time over the years I think I m going to wrap it up here and please don t let my 3 star rating dissuade you from giving this one a try Michaelides is talented and his writing is gripping and keeps you turning the pages regardless of the big twist I would be honored to read his next novel and will most certainly look for his name in the future In the meantime I have found so much in this novel worth discussing from the portrayal of mental health care to the inner workings of various marriages and think this will make a great winter book club choice for readers around the globe Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy via NetGalley

    This book starts off really strong with a great premise intriguing and mysterious right away the writing is even pretty strong in the beginning but somewhere along the way it all seemed to fall apart for me I felt like the author was so determined to deliver the big ‘twist’ that he lost sight of the actual plot It just gets so convoluted and meandering and I couldn’t really follow what actually happened from what was meant to be the
